Scalp Micropigmentation for Hair Loss

Micropigmentation, often referred to as trichopigmentation or micropigmentation for hair loss, is an exciting new technique that works by inserting a pigment just beneath the skin to create the illusion of closely cropped hair.  Scalp micropigmentation is another term for this. As one of the leading San Francisco Bay Area centers for scalp micropigmentation, we are really excited to offer this technology!

Trichopigmentation is a technological evolution of aesthetic and paramedical micropigmentation which allows us to inoculate into the superficial layer of the skin (dermis) a specific pigment capable of altering appearance by recreating the effect of hair on a scalp.

Trichopigmentation is a technique which enables our patients to camouflage baldness (hair loss) or scars in the most suitable way depending on the patient’s situation. By performing this type of treatment, the shaved effect is achieved using a microscopic deposit of pigment, in the shape of tiny dots. The aim is to obtain a natural result. A treatment session takes 1-3 hrs depending on the area being treated. We perform our session with local anesthesia. We can perform the trichopigmentation sessions with semi-permanent (re-absorbable) or permanent pigments. There is no down-time after the procedure.

Applications for Micropigmentation

  • Scar Camouflage– Trichopigmentation is commonly used to camouflage scars caused by surgery procedures such as hair transplant (FUE and STRIP) or accidental injury.
  • Density Effect – The density effect allows the patient to have a thicker look and better coverage even in the case of long hair: it reduces transparency; It reduces dyscromia; it increases the appearance of hair density and thickness; it helps avoid the use of camouflaging products.
  • Shaved effect – By choice or necessity, trichopigmentation with the shaved effect aims at reconstructing the entire scalp with a “shaved look” or “stubble” look.
